Weekly Update: September 30, 2021
The old oil shortage story is playing out again. Not sure what the geniuses in DC are thinking in killing pipelines and exploration projects here at home.
Now here we are again hat in hand trying to get OPEC to increase production, which is exactly the thing that is not in their best interest.
On top of the multi trillion in new spending being proposed the news hasn’t mentioned we’re in the process of a multi–trillion dollar wealth transfer to Russia and the OPEC countries which include some of our dear friends like Iran and Venezuela. We are paying that bill every day when we fill the car, buy anything made of plastic, goods being shipped by rail or truck and getting on an airplane.

As Senator Kennedy says… “It takes a special kind of stupid”
|Once again, Wall Street is worried about slowing growth and relentless inflation. |
In the wake of this week’s run up in oil, which coincided with energy crunches in China and the U.K., a certain word associated with slowing growth and higher inflation — popularized during a particularly rough stretch nearly 50 years ago — has begun to circulate. The word you’re looking for? Stagflation. Ever since soaring inflation — including crude prices (CL=F) — became the talk of the pandemic-era recovery, stagflation has been bandied about increasingly, especially as growth slowly came back down to earth from stratospheric levels post-lockdown. In Great Britain, gas lines reminiscent of the 70s have captured the public’s attention.
Now, with extreme weather events like Hurricane Ida crimping energy supplies and cold weather looming for the Northeastern U.S., Brent crude is making a run at $80 per barrel — which, combined with spiking yields, has unsettled the market. It’s also prompted a couple of Wall Street banks to make fairly aggressive oil price forecasts heading into year’s end.
This week, Goldman Sachs shifted from “a cyclically bullish to a structurally bullish oil view” that caused analysts to hike its year-end forecast to $90 per barrel. And given current trends related to COVID-19, that’s making some people nervous. “The supply simply isn’t there to fill the demand, and the fear becomes if there’s a harsh winter, there’s going to be harsh price spikes,” Bob Iaccino, Path Trading Partners co-founder, told Yahoo Finance Live on Wednesday.
further progress” needed for the central bank to begin slowing the pace of those purchases.

Seven Simple Rules for Owning ETFs and Exchange-Traded Products
Since the beginning of this month traditionally marks back-to-school time for many, I thought the timing was appropriate for this article on basic investor education with a focus on ETFs and similarly traded instruments. The following seven actions reflect practices, many quite common, I’ve seen executed often that I consider major mistakes. In fact, I strongly advise most investors never to take these actions. Moreover, I personally believe they fall short of best practices for most fiduciaries and advisors. The last two may be especially controversial and do not apply to expert short-term traders or mega-institutions. There is an abbreviated list of the seven actions at the end of this blog if you are limited on time.
